    Käthe Wohlfahrt: weird or wonderful?

    by iaint Written Sep 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is weird. I can’t describe it any other way.

    It’s a Christmas shop. It sells Christmas stuff all year. I’d never heard of such a thing.

    I’m told it’s very famous. Certainly it makes an impression. Have to confess I’m in the “Christmas belongs to December” crowd on a good day. Hate it with a vengeance on a bad day.

    So, if you want to buy Christmas decorations or presents all year round, this is ideal for you!

    My wallet was not disturbed.

    What to buy: Christmas stuff, if you really must.

    What to pay: Not sure. I denied myself.

    Any Bakery: Schneeballs in RODT

    by SandiM Written Apr 29, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to any bakery in RODT and select your choice of Schneeball. If you go to a bakery called 'Diller's' (and apparently there are a few of them around town), you will certainly get a wide variety of Schneeball to sample (chcolate covered, cinnamon, powder sugar, speckled, etc), and these are all machine-made, I am told. Other bakeries sell hand-made. My take on this particular foodstuff is this: a Schneeball is the product of leftover pastry cut from pies, etc and fisted up into a ball, then deep fried briefly before being coated with various sweet concoctions. It is generally a firm pastry, therefore a firm bite is needed. I nibbled, slowly, taking 2 days to finish one Schneeball at various tea times. My hotel staff advised me that Diller's bakeries produce machine-made Schneeballs, but you can also purchased the hand-made ones as well at other bakeries (so decide if you want authentic or not!). The dough itself was quite bland, it was the coating that made it slightly more interesting. It's a must to try in this city, but be prepared to take your time eating it. Around 2.20 euro at time of this printing (April 2008).

    What to pay: 2.20 euro (at time of this printing)

    Lots of places to buy souvenirs

    by imlikeabird Written Jan 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    No particular shop, just meandor around the town and you will find no shortage of places to shop for souvenirs. In particular, we found lots of toy stores, souvenir shops, and Christmas decorations.

    What to buy: I really truly wish I remembered the name of shop, but it's on one of the main streets. My favorite store contained suits of armor, swords, and masks. See photos attached!

    What to pay: Your average postcards, etc. Unless you buy a suit of armor, of course. Truly, you can buy (great) food for reasonable prices, parking is marginal, and not buy anything else and still enjoy the town for hours

    A toy storefront The midievil shop that fascinated me A mask for sale

    Our first day Yuki and I walked into this store to find a map of the town. The woman kindly handed us one from behind the counter. We were on the Cuckoo Clock hunt on day two and ended up back in the same confines. Upon entering, the woman came over to us and sat staring at Yuki as our eyes were pasted on the swinging pendulums of the clocks.

    "You a beauty" the woman said, as she stood lock eyed on Yuki.
    "You were here yesterday" she finished.

    With all the people that must drop in she remembered us. She was so sweet. She autographed a map and gave it to us and than gave us a replica of our clock in the magnet form (pictured) to, as she put it, "show your friends".

    The owner and our new magnet
